Arts & Crafts: An Attitude for Gratitude

"On his joyously expressive new album, 'An Attitude for Gratitude' (Palmetto), the drummer Matt Wilson subjects a smart batch of tunes — originals, themes by jazz elders and 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' — to the interpretive process of a working band. That band is Arts and Crafts, his soulful postbop quartet, with Terell Stafford on trumpet; Gary Versace on piano, organ and accordion; and Martin Wind on bass" (Nate Chinen, "Jazz Listings," New York Times, 2/23/12).
